Jean-Yves
Thibaudet

Piano

Born in Lyon, Jean-Yves Thibaudet is one of the most celebrated and versatile pianists of our time. His repertoire ranges from Beethoven to MacMillan and from jazz to opera.

At the age of twelve, Thibaudet went to study with Aldo Ciccolini and Lucette Descaves at the Paris Conservatoire, winning the Premier prix du conservatoire three years later. Three years after that, he won the New York Young Concert Artists International Auditions, which launched his international career.

Shortly afterwards, he gave his first public performances on the leading stages of the United States, Europe and Asia. He has since performed with the world’s best orchestras in nearly every major concert hall.

Thibaudet’s extensive discography has earned him two Grammy nominations, the German Record Critics’ Award, a Diapason d’Or, a Choc du Monde de la Musique, an Edison and several Gramophone Awards.

In 2001, the French government bestowed upon him the rank of Chevalier in the Ordre des Arts et Lettres, and in 2012, that of Officier. His name has adorned the Hollywood Bowl of Fame since the summer of 2010.

First appearing with the orchestra in 1988, under the direction of Riccardo Chailly, Thibaudet has since been a frequent guest with the Concertgebouworkest and served as the orchestra’s Artist in Residence during its 2015–16 season. His most recent performances with the orchestra were in February 2016, when he performed Gershwin’s Piano Concerto in F.
